NEW CVSA Out-of-Service Criteria for ATIS-equipped vehicles


Since 2022, P.S.I. has worked closely with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) to help develop NEW tire inspection guidelines and training information for enforcement and industry professionals as it relates to the 2024 North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria (OOSC).


Effective in the April 1, 2024 edition for CVSA's OOSC, certain ATIS-equipped trailers will be assessed as follows during a roadside inspection:

Rationale: With the increase in automatic tire inflation systems (ATIS) and the impact they have on the reduction of tire blowouts, the OOSC will differentiate between leaks in the tread area of a tire equipped with ATIS versus a tire without ATIS. If, at any time throughout the inspection, the tire is checked for pressure and the tire is found to be 50% or less of the maximum inflation on the sidewall of the tire, the vehicle will be placed OOS. Allowing an ATIS-equipped vehicle to travel to a safe location (next dispatch) with a small puncture in the tread area of the tire reduces the potential for rear-end collisions or other roadside incidents without affecting the safe operation of the vehicle.


This is GREAT news for Fleets that have adopted an Automatic Tire Inflation System that utilize the trailers onboard air system to maintain proper tire inflation.
